It’s been a strange sort of week.
The tooth drama rolls on sapping my energy as the weeks pass, today I’ve taken up the offer of a second round of antibiotics prescribed by my dentist, ‘just in case’. Getting to the root cause of the pain has turned into a tedious game of hide and seek. I can tell you it hurts most when I drive up hill (don’t laugh it isn’t funny, remember? I live at the top of a hill. Maybe there is a reason for this?) Mr Uphilldowndale and the boys can vouch for the fact my sense of humour is AWOL too.
Something else disappeared this week, Police Inspector Gadget blog. This leaves a gapping hole in the blogosphere, as long as I’ve been blogging Gadget has been popping by here, he was especially fond of Spud the dog. One of his clear crisp text messages told me he’d written his last post and was pulling the blog. No fuss no drama. 24 hours later it was gone.
Gadget is always a man of his word, I know that. The news didn’t surprise me and yet it did, after all, seven years of blogging, 12 million hits and up to five hundred comments or more per post, not to mention the book, has to be a huge part of someone’s life.
My camera has not seen the light of day this week, so I’ll leave you with a suitably occluded image from my visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park a few weeks ago.
